1st Place - Social Venture Competition

Hooray for the vision of 2ft Prosthetics as it took FIRST PLACE in the Social Venture Competition at BYU (Brigham Young University). For the winning prize the team will receive $10,000 dollars to implement their idea this upcoming summer.Dave and Kay presented the idea on powerpoint in front of their peers and yesterday in front of the judges.
To prove that this prosthetic device works, they had an amputee come and wear it for the crowd to see. It was AWESOME!!
As you can tell by the looks on their faces, they were all excited to see some of their hard work pay off in winning this competition today.Dee Williams and Roland Radack, two of the teams mentors', were both present to support this effort which all team members appreciated. They provide confidence and direction to these individuals in a way that others do not.
Great job 2ft Prosthetics! This is definitely a day to be celebrated!!!.....and first place goes to,.......da, da, dah!,...2FT PROSTHETICS!
